I'm not a regular smoker, but I have purchased cigarettes out of spite.



It's my understanding that those ads are actually put out by the tobacco companies as is required by the courts. I'm not 100% certain on that little tidbit of info, but if it's true, the tobacco companies are geniuses.

Didn't see a problem with them. I'm not a smoker. They didn't seem to put down guns or gunowners.

Well they didn't come right out and say it but they acted like bullets only purpose is to kill people... because after all every bullet every fired is intended to kill someone and nobody shoots paper in a safe and proper environment

Just to follow up with this post, it appears that I was correct... To some extent at least. Wikipedia isn't the most reputable source, but I can always go back and check for more references. According to what I see here, the American Legacy Foundation which puts these commercials out in conjunction with the advertising agencies is the love child of the tobacco companies and attorneys general. It is funded by big tobacco. Very interesting...




Truth was originally created in 1997 by advertising agencies Crispin Porter + Bogusky and Arnold Worldwide as a central theme to a statewide anti-smoking initiative in Florida. In 1999, the campaign was taken to the national stage by the American Legacy Foundation, a nonprofit anti-smoking organization. PHD is the media agency for the truth campaign[1]

...


The American Legacy Foundation (ALF)[1][2][3] is a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing teen smoking and encouraging smokers to quit. Their vision is "Building a world where young people can reject tobacco and anyone can quit"

The organization is responsible for the truth anti-youth smoking ad campaign, which won an Effy Award in 2005, and the creation and continued funding of the Legacy Tobacco Documents Library (LTDL) [1], a digital library hosted by the University of California, San Francisco. The LTDL contains more than 7 million internal documents (40+ million pages) created by major tobacco companies related to their advertising, manufacturing, marketing, sales, and scientific research activities.

The American Legacy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that was established in March 1998 as a result of the Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) between a coalition of attorneys general in 46 states and five United States territories and the tobacco industry. It is funded primarily by payments designated by the settlement.
